The Easiest Dessert Recipe You Can Follow

Let’s face it, many of you watch a recipe video or a blog post about a certain food you are craving and you want to try making it. As soon as you enter the kitchen and list off the few ingredients you need, your mom hits you with the, “We don’t have any of those, Beta.” Well, I have been a victim of that too, so I curated the easiest technique of making donuts. I can give you 99.9% (not a 100 because even Dettol doesn’t guarantee you that 1%) guarantee that you will have all the ingredients you’ll need in the cabinets and drawers of your kitchen.

Donuts, or doughnuts, is made by frying sweetened dough, topped with toppings of your choice. Noticed I said fried? Yes, you read it right, you don’t need an oven to make these sweet, puffy and warm delicacies.

Moving on, let me show you what you’ll need and how you can make the easiest and the tastiest donuts in the comfort of your home.

Ingredients

  • Refined wheat flour
  • Sugar
  • Yeast
  • Butter
  • Baking powder
  • Refined oil
  • Chocolate (optional)
  • Vanilla extract (optional)

Steps

  1. To activate the yeast, add a teaspoon of sugar in a cup of warm water and stir until dissolved, sprinkle in some yeast and let sit until frothy—for about 8 minutes.
  2. In a clean bowl mix the activated yeast with flour, butter, sugar and half a teaspoon of baking powder. Add vanilla extract if available to enhance the flavour. When the dough is ready, cover it with a clean cloth and let it rise for a few hours.
  3. Once the dough has risen, roll the dough ½” thick and cut out circles in it with the help of a doughnut cutter or 3″ and 1″ biscuit cutters. You can even use a clean container lid and punch holes using a smaller container lid.
  4. Heat the oil for 3 minutes on medium and pop in 2-3 donut rings. Cook on both sides until the colour is slightly deep golden and place them on a baking sheet for 5 minutes.
  5. Coat with powdered sugar or melted chocolate—lo and behold, your homemade donuts are ready to be devoured!

Try out this recipe once, you’ll never regret it! As for store-bought donuts, you can bid them goodbye!
